What started off as a half-hearted acrostic poem for a uni assignment turned into the poetic expression of one of the special relationships in the short history my life. I hope no one takes offence to it.

John Marshall 2011

Joining hands, bound together

Overlocking links of flesh and chain,

Hidden bracelets in plain sight

Never faltering to ask the world.

Masks of bravado aside, to want

All and nothing. An unreasonable


Silence – enough to hear the beating

Heart of imprisoned freedom.

A wasted pain, a cherished joy.

Lonely, yet together;

Love’s barbed embrace.
